does this happen to you?

I was holding a mirror up to get Hyperion to flare (which he never does) and Tythes (my female) flared instead. I tried it a 2nd time and, just like before, she flared. why is my girl so aggressive and my boy so not aggressive?
(I still love them of coarse)

Please respond... I think my fish are having a sort of identity crisis.

Ok. now I am really cunfuzzled. I am 100% positive that she is a she but Tythes is currently going insane chasing around Lennard, my zebra minnow, and flaring at him!!

oh, and Hyperion is scared of the mirror. I have taken it away from both of them.

I also just found out that she is a combtail. huh.

Some just don't want to fight like Luimeril said "it depends on the betta" my sisters doesn't always "fight" his reflection. But someday's he's a tiger!!! It could possibly mean that he's sick. Animals who are sick or hurt don't pick fights in fear of being injured further. But I'm no doctor.

Akira is very picky about when he flares. He flares sometimes aggressively sometimes meekly. Sometimes he just swims away.

All ten of my fish flare. It doesn't matter if they are Ill or what. Sometimes, if I interup their flare, they flare at me! Haha
